Firmware Version: 2014 03 31 (6030)
Virtual Calculator Version: 2014 03 31 (6031)

Description
-----------
This release of the Prime Calculator firmware and associated PC software delivers significant new features and fixes outstanding issues. This document is not a complete list of all changes, but highlights specific items. All users of the HP Prime calculator are encouraged to upgrade for the best possible experience.

Backward Compatibility
----------------------
There is limited backward compatibility between this and earlier releases.

Older Prime hardware (Revision A) does support this release, however the wireless, unit-to-unit, and data streamer functionality is not supported on earlier models. In the Help->About HP Prime screen the hardware revision will be displayed along with software version information. Mixing and matching software revisions is not encouraged and may cause unexpected results. Users are strongly encouraged to first backup their calculators with the older firmware and Connectivity Kit - then upgrade all their calculator software (firmware, Connectivity Kit, and Virtual Calculator). Upgrade the Connectivity kit first, before upgrading your calculator firmware. This order will produce the best experience.

The geometry application and inference have received significant updates and earlier data files will not be compatible. Old data files from earlier revisions will not load and and a new empty data file will overwrite the old one.

Due to some specific issues resolved, certain user programs may not run on the new system without changes first. Specifically, any commands with the Σ character in the name may need to be corrected to use the correct sigma character. Function variables will now also error if the function parameter is using a reserved system function name (example: SIN or COLOR). Additionally, the TRIANGLE commands were modified to allow TRIANGLE, LINE and FILLPOLY to share similar data and syntax to enable easier creation of complex 3D drawings

New Functionality (Connectivity Kit)
------------------------------------
1. Application has had major improvements to the user interface. Please refer to the included connectivity kit User's Guide for instructions and details.

Backward Compatibility
This release of the Connectivity Kit is backward compatible with the HP Prime 1.0 firmware. However, some unexpected results may occur sending data from the Calculator to the Connectivity Kit when using prior versions. HP recommends that you upgrade your calculator to the matching 1.0.1 version of the firmware for best results.

RE: Revision 6975 appears to be available
I just copied/pasted from the release notes; I'll go ahead and delete my insertion since yours is much more legible.

Just curious: I take it that RPN mode is fixed as advertised? (Again, haven't tested and don't use RPN on this calculator myself)

RE: Revision 6975 appears to be available
The X^2 bug in RPN mode seems to be fixed.

I'm still having trouble installing the update with a new Windows 7 Professional laptop. The process hangs. I had to plug the calculator into my older Windows 7 laptop.

I'm not sure where to go to "complain" about this. I know I'm not the only Windows 7 Professional user that can't update the Prime this way. When I go to hp.com and look under support, everything is supported except the calculator.

Are you on a USB 3 port? Did you try using a different port (like from the back of the system instead of the side one for example?

RE: Revision 6975 appears to be available
What steps were you using? Does manually right-clicking on the calculator (in the conn. kit) and choose to update the firmware that way make any difference (as opposed to just plugging in the calculator and having it auto-update)?

RE: Revision 6975 appears to be available
Firmware updated succesfully. 6975 is on my calculator. Thanks for the info, Han.

Is there another other difference from 6940 version, apart from x^2 RPN issue?

I replaced the CODE tags by QUOTE as CODE disables the line wrap while QUOTE allows it. You can edit your post and I will let remove my reply.

Yes, x^2 is working now, at least on the calculator. I'm missing the new emulator, though.

You probably caught it in the middle of the automated FTP posting process. All 3 are there now.

Where should the emulator setup have been downloaded to? I can't find it on my computer.

It launches it immediately. I assume it goes into a temp dir somewhere. The check for update in the emulator is the only one that will find the emu installer.

RE: Revision 6975 appears to be available
Hello,

On Win8.1 x64 I updated all to the latest version 6975 and it went without any problems. I used Help menu in Connectivity Kit.

Cheers

A manual download did the trick.

Yes, I am using a USB 3.0 port. Next update I will use the USB 2.0 in back of the docking station. Thanks!

Tim suggests not plugging into a USB 3.0 port, so I will try that next update. Thanks!
